Once a text field has data stored, it is not very easy or obvious how to change its maximum length. In the UI there is a message warning you that the field cannot be changed, because there is existing data. Sometimes it is necessary to change these values. It seems that there are a few ways and some resources to do this in Drupal 7, but I could not find a way to do this in Drupal 8. I decided to create a small function to do it:
